“frames are cheap”

Written on: 13/02/2014 by evostar (1 review written)

This was a great bike to ride off road but the framed snapped on the chainstay swing arm seems to be a common problem.Also the rear suspension with no lockout is a bit of a mare when climbing single track as it bottoms out. … Read Full Review

“Carrera Banshee not safe!”

Written on: 15/11/2012

Had 5 carrera banshee mountain bikes all bought from halfords over a period of the last 8 years,the latest bike to have was bought in June 2011 by Nov 2012 the bike frame has compleatly snapped twice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They replaced the frame the first time, but refuse refund by the second time. There are defiantly much better bikes and suppliers you could go to and spend £ 700. Unfortunatly i learnt the hard way luckily i hadn't got around to attaching my Daughters child seat could… Read Full Review

“Very good solid bike”

Written on: 09/10/2012 by n.williams (1 review written)

its a rearlly good bike, very few fault. it can take a beating and is brilliant all all kinds of terrain. there was one fault that occured from the beginning on the 2011 version of the bike that i got. that is that the brakes on the bike had issues and needed to be bleeded at least once a week! halfords however upgraded the brakes to a better spec for free. the tyres taht come with the bike are rearly good and grippy, however they do wear fast ecspessially on tarmac. also the chain that comes… Read Full Review

“CARRERA BANSHEE --------- FAULTY FRAMES”

Written on: 23/12/2011 by yanto10 (1 review written)

I purchased my son a Carrera Banshee for his 18th birthday and I am disgusted that after 2 months of riding on low grade downhill (max 8 times) the back, lower swinging arm structure has snapped, I have now seen atleast 3 others with the same trouble. THESE SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLED AS VERY DANGEROUS!!!!!!!!!!! BE AWARE if you are thinking of purchasing a Carrera Banshee from Halfords and a problem occurs they cannot help as they do not list replacement parts!!!!!! Cannot find any info on… Read Full Review

I bought a Carrera Kashmir mountain bike about twenty years ago, and after a lot of hard work on rough trails the bike looks and performs pretty much as it did when I bought it, with no apparent wear to bearings and very little adjustment being required. It has been meticulously maintained by myself and the only replacements have been tubes and tyres.

Written on: 13/02/2010

Bad boy bike. Looks the part rides the part and for the money i don't think there is a better bike out there. Strong and a good weight, good gear change and great breaks. Get this you wont be dissapointed. Unfortunately like cars one comes off the belt every so often that is no good, this is why people have bad experiances, but this bike is the dogs. Both on and off roads, once you get the little niggles sorted out like every new bike you will be thraping the roads and cutting the roots… Read Full Review
